Hong Kong’s leading Mentor Programme, the AustCham UOW Mentor Programme, is now open. This highly sought-after programme reached capacity quickly last year so we encourage you to register today.

This ten-month programme offers unparalleled learning and sharing opportunities providing access to senior executives and thought leaders through monthly workshops/sessions.    We run a combination of professional development, executive sharing, panel sessions, workshops and social events. And this in addition to the invaluable mentor-mentee matching. 

Now in its seventh year, this programme offers an exceptional opportunity for both mentors and mentees.


We seek individuals who are working in Hong Kong, have clear goals and an insatiable desire to learn. This requires a commitment to regular monthly meetings (dates to be confirmed) and engagement with your mentor.

What our previous participants said:


Belle: The effort and thought that goes into the program is astounding. The amount that you gain from the program as a me not is tremendous and I am forever grateful to the program for introducing me to such a proactive mentee who is now also a life long friend. 


Summer: The programme provides junior professionals the precious access to experienced senior executives from various industries. The form of a 'mentorship' sets up a mutually trusting foundation that greatly facilitates the whole sharing, listening, understanding and eventually, learning process. Besides the specific career knowledge I wanted to and did learn about, I really enjoy the relationship-building process itself with my mentor. Helen is a fabulous lady and I feel very lucky to have her as a mentor, a supporter and a friend.


Rod: Time spent with the mentees, different perspective from a different generation, connecting with new people and sharing my experiences of working and developing a career in HK.


Penny: Meeting so many interesting people from other sectors. The learning sessions were really well presented and on topic.


Patrick: My mentee was enthusiastic. The programme organisers were fantastic and really engaged the participants. Can't forget the wine evenings definitely helped with the atmosphere and the interaction between participants during the meetings.


Jessica: Enjoyed meeting new people, interesting panels, and good mentor.


Alex: Ability to learn from vast mentors from different industries, exposure to issues like diversity and unconscious bias helped me become a better rounded individual.
